I did a vehicle trade last month.
I traded this

for this

Its an '88 eddie bauer edition, efi 351 auto. I replaced the tailgate glass and wiring along with a new starter and battery. I just received upper and lower ball joints from rockauto. It runs great and should drive fine once they are installed.
This is where it all gets strange. The guy removed the bed from my traded toyota by hand and with the help of a hatchet:confused: Me trying to be a nice guy and help him out built a flatbed for him with what ever wood I had kicking around. The new owner followed my efforts up with a custom paint job.

And the interior was painted to match too:grin:
To top it all off he just gave it back to me yesterday. Hes leaving town and cant take it with him:-\
I guess Ill sell it and send him some money....

Sounds like you got one hella of a deal! Not only did you score a decent rig for a "not" so decent rig, but you got the rig you traded in the first place back! Now that's a trade I would like! The dood should have just given you the Bronco and saved all the hassle! :lol:

Traded out of rust?

I have been appreciating ford lately with swapping out a 95 econoline 350 w/5.8l with a conversion van and it reminds me of subaru as the power doors were plug and play onto the cargo van.
